News said 290 passengers. No clue on casualties, but they're transporting left and right to both SF and San Mateo.

The Brothers and Sisters of the San Francisco FD did an incredible job yesterday. A tip of the leather is well deserved!"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."
Lt. Ray McCormack, FDNY

Here's my best compilation (so far) of incident/department details. Still awaiting/looking for a run card, and a run-down of patients/transports/hospitals:

One early bit of speculation had the plane with too high an "angle of attack." It's been reported that the tail struck first. Aerial photos look to me like the plane may have actually struck the seawall at the end of the runway.
That said, it's said that any landing you can walk away from is a good landing. Not sure this one quite fits that description, but with all but two occupants surviving, it sure wasn't what it could have been.
A good job by all.Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.
Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.
